Wed, 09/26/2007 - 8:17am
Atmel Corporation announces its AT91CAP9A-DK development kit for the design and implementation of DSP algorithms, custom peripherals and additional processor cores on its ARM9-based customizable microcontrollers. The AT91CAP9 customizable microcontroller has a metal programmable (MP) block with the equivalent of 28 K or 56 K FPGA LUTs which can be used to implement any IP developed on an FPGA, including complex DSP algorithms such as OFDM, GPS correlators, FFTs, FIR filters or H.264. The MCUs can be customized directly from an FPGA netlist created on the development board, using conventional FPGA design tools. The resulting customized MCUs deliver as much as eight times the performance and consume 99 percent less static power.
